School trip

Join us on a school trip to Cardiff on Saturday 13th May.

We will spend the morning in the city centre. For lunch we’ll have a picnic in the park. In the afternoon we will visit the Science and Technology Museum.

Price: £20

Meet in the school car park at 8:00 am. Please arrive on time. We will return to the school at 5:30 pm.



Dear Students,

We hope you can come on our school trip next weekend. Unfortunately, the Science and Technology Museum is closed for building work on Saturday, but we have got tickets for St Fagans National History Museum instead. The good news is that entry is free so the trip will now cost £10 each.

Arrival and departure times are the same.

Mr Stuart Noble

Head Teacher

Last year I went on a school picnic. We had water fights, ate delicious food and also played street games. I really enjoyed being with my friends outside the school. Actually I hope this year it will be more fun.

I really enjoy going on school trips because we can do interesting things that we can't do in classrooms and we can learn different things too. I've only been on one day school trips, but they were amazing.

Hi I like school trips because I dont have to learn in the classroom. We went to Museums or we went hiking. But they were just short trips. Some years ago we were going to have a longer trip in which we sleep somewhere but then there was storm, so we postponed it but then Corona Lockdown started unfortunately. So I haven't been on a longer trip yet. FlowerQueen~♡

Yes, sure. I love school trips very much! It's like holidays for me. The last time we went to the Art Museum. We've seen there many beautiful masterpieces of famous artists. Once we went to History Military Museum to observe military vehicles, weapons and solders' clothes. It was very interesting to see all of that. History is very important for to be educated person.

Yes. I enjoy going on a school trips. I went to Nuwara Eliya with my school friends in February last year. First we visited Gergory lake. We had a boats ride. Next we visited Abewela Farm and Haggala Botanical Gardens. In the farm, we saw a lot of cows grazing in the green field. I ran here and there with my friends. We laughed lot. We saw beautiful flowers in the Botanical Gardens. The most beautiful flowers were roses. I took many photos of roses with my friend, Dilshani. I enjoyed creamy yogurt together with my friends during the journey.I hope to go on the next school trip with my frends this year too.

Unfortunately, I am not a schoolchild, so I don't have school trips. I remember, when I went to school, we often had school trips.

I don't have any school trips, almost my classmate parents don't feel safe at this. But when I was 10 (or 11) years old, we went to another school to test the teaching ability of homeroom teachers. We got in the school car, I still remember the weather rained. Just think it is a school trip. : )
